1853                Rooms over J. P. Plank’s Store, Herkimer, New York.

Bullard is recorded in the Herkimer County Democrat. (Frankfort, New York) in two advertisement that ran from March 16 to 30, 1853.  Just received at Bullard’s Daguerrean Gallery, an extra lot of those beautiful Papier Mache Cases, in which pictures that are unexceptionable, will be put at the extremely low price of Three dollars each.  Feb. 23.

The second advertisement.  The Immense Rush That Still Continues At Bullard’s Daguerrean Gallery proclaims that the people are the judges still.

They have seen and now believe that they can there secure for themselves, beautiful, life-like, never-fading Daguerreotype Miniatures, at very reasonable prices, varying from one dollar upwards, according to size and richness of case.

Other engagements have limited his time of remaining in this place to two weeks longer.  Rooms over J. P. Plank’s store.  Herkimer, March 9, 1853.

Bullard first name is unknown, the March 16, 1853 issue is the first paper I had access to, the volume no. is XI, and issue no. is 28.  Note the dates on the end of each advertisement February 23 and March 9.  It is possible that this is S. C. Bullard based on dates of ads and proximity of Cooperstown and Herkimer, but it is only speculation on my part.
